How Being Called a "Bitch" Led to Blake Griffin Beating Up Equipment Guy

We told you Blake Griffin was ultra-sensitive, but there’s nothing the Clippers equipment guy could have said to the towering power forward that deserved being punched in the face twice.

According to reports, everyone in the Clippers organization—from management to multiple teammates—are upset with Griffin, as one player told TMZ Sports, “He let the team down.”

We’ve spoken with several people in the Clippers organization — including players — who tell us people are sour on Blake because he acted “selfishly” when he punched the team’s equipment manager.

Our sources tell us … Blake and Matias Testi had been arguing pretty intensely at Sotto Sotto in Toronto — but it escalated when Testi called Blake a “bitch” … and Blake felt disrespected.

The players we spoke with say they feel bad for both Blake and Testi — both are well liked in the organization — but they’re more upset with Blake because his stupid mistake really hurts the team.

Is the situation fixable? From what we’re told, yes … but it’s on Blake to win back the team — and the owner — who had issued a statement essentially saying Griffin was a disgrace to the team.

They could have argued over anything, but Griffin put his career and bank account (contract, endorsements) all on the line over being called a “bitch” by a friend and equipment guy who doesn’t stand a chance in the confrontation.

Memphis Grizzlies power forward Zach Randolph has uttered those same words before, and Griffin never flinched.
